Dough:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Crushed Red Pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup 1% milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour 
 
Filling:
1 cup (about 1-1/2 ounces) chopped fresh spinach
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped
1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Crushed Red Pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced 
 
Topping:
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1/8 teaspoon pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon rosemary, chopped


Directions
Dough: Combine all-purpose flour, undissolved yeast, flaxseed meal, crushed and ground red pepper, rosemary and salt in a large bowl.  Heat honey, milk and oil to 120°F to 130°F; gradually add to dry ingredients.   Beat with electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes.  With wooden spoon, stir in enough of the whole wheat flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on floured surface for about 8 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl; cover with dish towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Filling:   In small bowl, combine filling ingredients; mix.  Set aside.

Roll dough to a 12 X 8-inch rectangle.  Spread filling evenly over surface of dough to within 1-inch of edges; press filling into dough.  Working from narrow end, roll up tightly.  Pinch seam and ends to seal.  Place in greased 9 X 5-inch loaf pan.  Cover; set in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, about 50 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375° F.  Bake for 20 minutes.  

Topping:  Beat egg white lightly with water in a small bowl.  Brush mixture over surface of loaf, and sprinkle with crushed red pepper and rosemary.  Bake an additional 20 minutes.  

Note: You may need to cover loaf with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent excess browning.  Remove from pan.  Cool on wire rack.
